After the storage reservation policy is created, populate it with datastores. A datastore can belong to only one storage reservation policy. Add multiple datastores to create a group of datastores for use with a blueprint.


Create a storage reservation policy.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Compute Resources > Compute Resources.
  2. Point to a compute resource and click Edit.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. Locate the datastore to add to your storage reservation policy in the Storage table.
  5. Click the Edit icon (Edit).
  6. Select your storage reservation policy from the Storage Reservation Policy column drop-down menu.
  7. Click the Save icon (Save).
  8. Click OK.
  9. (Optional) Assign additional datastores to your storage reservation policy.


Tenant administrators and business group managers can now use your storage reservation policy in blueprints.
